Never was there a more tranquil and architecturally beautiful place in all the lands.

  • 5 of 5

The best way I can think of to describe this house is an open-concept, enchanted hobbit mansion. I've never seen a more beautifully unique space and have never experienced a more tranquil setting. I swear there is the most amazing kind of white magic spell cast over this place. The rule is if you stop moving for more than 5-10 minutes at a time, you will fall asleep every time. It's just the best. I can't say enough good things.

Beautiful house however the trees need to be trimmed so they don't block the lake view.

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful and well kept home. Very relaxing and has everything you need. I didn't like that it is a loft/open floor plan, so you hear everything someone else is doing. When one person wakes up, the entire house is up. I also did not like how the property manager stays on site..very nice man but made it feel like someone was watching you.

Beautiful but could be so much more...

  • 3 of 5

Unique & beautiful inside & out but needs some updating. Cleaning fee charged but required to gather towels/linens & place by washing machine & carry out trash. Light switches in odd places. Labeled but not convenient. Trees need trimming to allow view of lake. Now on the upside...place was very peaceful, bluebonnets were so pretty. Lake Travis was beautiful. Patio and view are awesome. Todd was pleasant and helpful.

Owner's Response: Hi Catherine - thank you for your feedback. I am constantly making improvements and updating things on property. The amount of changes in the last year is very noticeable and continues to change - all for the better - daily. We spend an entire week trimming back the trees behind the main house and I think you would be delighted at the updated views as well as some of the additions in the house. We hope you come back and experience it a new!

Magic Thai massage and yoga during an awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

Anyone yearning for a "coming back to your senses" retreat with lots of creature comforts should spend some time at Living Waters. Bethany our hostess and instructor did a super job giving us a wonderful deep tissue massage and a very thorough yoga lesson. I would only recommend this gem to my favorite people. An added benefit is the kitchen which is perfect for cooking your own relaxing meals. Restaurants are about 20 minutes away but then again - who wants to leave paradise?
